Lovely words.....

A Dream Within A Dream
Edgar Allan Poe

Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow-
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand-
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep- while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?


Thank you, Pranesh....!

After Reading a Poem

Words...
Have the power to move me.
They are birds
That beat their wings
In my heart....
The song each bird sings
Can be a balm...or a dart
That may make me think...and improve me.

How can strokes on a paper sheet
Or on a lit-up screen
Sound so sad...or so sweet?
What part of my brain
Do they touch...
That they can cause so much joy, or pain?
Do they touch my mind, or my heart..
When they move me so much?
Or...do they touch somewhere in between?
Are poems a science? Or an art?
